Hi! I have a 15 week old showgirl silkie who is lowest on the totem pole. Once in a while when she feels nervous and tries to run, she gets all discombobulated and falls down. Not always though. And it's been going on for a couple weeks, I think. At first I though she bonked her head, it looked like maybe she had a swelling on the back of her head. But I don't know, she has a weird looking head anyway. Yes, I am new to chickens ;-) I have never seen the others peck her, but the head hen does seem to intimidate her. Do you think she did get pecked and has brain damage? Could she be dehydrated? I do place several water dishes around though. I had been giving electrolytes for a few days just in case. Does it sound like a sickness? She does eat. Although she is a spaz and has trouble getting the worms I occasionally give them. Like she has bad aim or something. And I've been away for home for a week, so i am getting second hand info. I will be home tomorrow. What is up with this wacky creature?
